The Latte Art Throwdown last Thursday was a fun and fairly quiet affair. We had nine participants in total – five from B&B, and four visiting baristas from Olympia Coffee Roasters. Judges were Terry Z of Oly Roasters and our own Michael Elvin, both of whom bantered with the baristas and assessed their art on the following points: symmetry/creativity, color/contrast and definition.
The evening produced a lovely array of leaf patterns and hearts, (including one which looked uncannily like a Canadian maple) with Sam Schroeder from Olympia Coffee Roasters taking the prize for a particularly attractive latte leaf.
Rumour has it that Oliver Stormshak stopped in late, just in time to win the judges’ round. However, since we have no photographic evidence of this, his winning art will remain a mystery…
